According to https://www.logos.com/support/logos/desktop/hardware , 1GB+ DirectX11 Compatible Video Card is necessary. Is it really necessary?

Thanks.

That is the recommended hardware page. The minimum requirements are at https://www.logos.com/system-requirements

Note the lack of graphics card requirement there.

If You have an old computer I would worry more about CPU. Andrew's reply is correct, memory on graphics card may get used up if You do like me and have hundreds of tabs open even on an old computer. I'm satisfied to run Verbum 5 and Libronix. /Unix

I am ordering a new computer which is Inter Core i7-7700 processor with 16 GB RAM. But it has “Integrated Graphic Audio/Lan”. I am a baby in computer. Could you please tell me that without the 1GB+ DirectX11 Compatible Video Card this new computer is only slower (but there is nothing lost or unseen)? Thanks.

I would definitely go with AMD CPU equivalent, instead of Intel i7, i.e. not merely just AMD graphics. (CPU and graphics is not the same thing.) AMD CPU:s are more stable, a MUCH better investment competition-wise and perform better, particularly multitasking, so optimal for newest version of Logos. The current and forthcoming AMD CPU:s are very competitive once again. I used to have an AMD FX - computer, I can't afford right now, next purchase an Intel Core 2 Extreme X7800 2.6 GHz laptop which is a decade old CPU - good for Verbum 5 and Libronix.
Hundreds of thousands of Verbum users fail to consider AMD just because of ignorance. It's definitely better, faster, better choice, much better to choose it if considering morals

Integrated graphics use less power, which is important on a portable device like a laptop/notebook. It will be slightly slower than a Video card for Logos and other non-gaming applications, but make sure you order an SSD (Solid State drive) which is much faster for Logos than a HDD (Hard Disk drive).

That wasn't the question and this statement is confusing. The Intel i7 is fine whilst the new AMD CPU's are still not as fast as Intel, overall.

An Intel purchase now is not fine in the long run, and AMD is probably a lot faster than Intel Core i7-7700 which the OP mentioned in one post:
